Another year flies by… another monthly hidden treasure from Lacey Anne!

This month my hidden treasure isn’t the thrill of a steal, a piece for the wall, or a pair of accent chairs.  I just returned from a long weekend at the Beaufort House Inn in Asheville, NC.  While my husband planned the details of the long weekend, I reflected on the end of a big year for us and couldn’t wait to nestle up in the mountains and ring in our last New Year’s Eve as two… for in just a few weeks we will become three.

This hidden treasure is not tangible, it is the blessing of truly slowing down, stepping into a photograph I would save in my folder of inspiration, and quietly reveling in the reflection of where we have been and where we will soon be headed.  It is difficult in the bustle of the holidays to really take the time to slow your heart rate and get away from it all, but that is just what we did.  I will always be cherish my wonderful husband, and remember this trip as our last before we become a family.

The Beaufort House is a true hidden treasure and would recommend it to anyone if you are looking for a place to sit down.  How often do we sit down and simply be at peace?  No tapping our foot, checking our email, or thinking of all the other things we could be doing.  This is my treasure I hold so dear right now and thought it would be the perfect thing to share as a new, shiny year is before us.

Wishing you and yours many moments in 2012 when you can sit down and snuggle your own hidden treasures, take a breath, and have a moment to center yourself and your priorities.  And if you can head to Asheville to do it, Beaufort House is just the perfect place… A claw foot tub awaits your arrival for a soak…

Cheers,

Lacey Anne
